This rugged, entry-level mic brings Sennheiser quality to applications ranging from solo vocals to choir miking and speech. The cardioid XS 1 offers well-defined sound with an excellent presence in the mix. It is fitted with a lockable Mute switch and comes complete with a stand mount and leatherette pouch.
The XS 1 features balanced, full-bodied sound with a slight emphasis on the treble, which ensures that vocals will easily cut through the mix on stage. Its cardioid pick-up pattern provides additional isolation from unwanted sound and great feedback rejection. The capsule is shock-mounted to minimize handling noise, while the mic’s frequency response filters out any structure-borne low-frequency noise.
The XS 1 provides great ease of use, with a silent Mute switch that puts users in full control of their sound transmission. Whenever the switch is not needed, it can be securely locked in the “On” position. With an all-metal body and a hardened sound inlet basket to protect its capsule, this mic is suitable for any environment.
